He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother Charles Edward Shrum, and a sister Carol Burton. Surviving him are two older sisters, Judith Ann Thompson of Indianapolis and Sharon Fultz of Solsberry, Indiana and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
From childhood, Nick enjoyed working on old cars, hotrods, and motorcycles with his father. His pride and joy was building a replica of the motorcycle ridden by Dennis Hopper in the movie Easy Rider. He toured seven states with the World of Wheels in 2003 with the machine winning many awards.

Nick was a Vietnam Veteran serving in the Army. He was a member of Emmaus Lutheran Church in Indianapolis. Retirement plans were living on sixty acres in Trafalgar in southern Johnson County, but retirement to heaven is better.
